Before and after: Ajumma's kitchen

Ajumma's rambler is currently on the market.  Potential buyers have viewed our 1979 home and have left their feedback.  It's basically all been a variation of "your kitchen is old as f*ck." The previous owners stained the cabinets a reddish-brown, which absorbs all light.  Even on the sunniest day standing in our kitchen is like being submerged in a dark hole of sorrow.  Thus, over Independence Day weekend my husband and I painted our kitchen cabinets and installed new hardware.

Our kitchen now has a clean, cottage-like feeling! Even the brownish-yellow laminate countertops seem cheery.  I pretend we've moved to the beach and the ocean is steps from our door.
